Since we launched in 1978, over 56,000 people have sailed with us. Each year over 1,000 more people will join us on a voyage of discovery. Some crew will be disabled, some may be living with mental health problems or social isolation. We support anybody who needs us through our life-changing platform: Tenacious.

Operating Tenacius and running the JST charity is only possible thanks to donations from our supporters. Donations enable us to subsidise every berth, making our voyages even more accessible.

I would like to donate a one-off:

I would like to donate monthly:

£6 per month could provide food and drink onboard Tenacious, ensuring our crew are well-fuelled and ready for challenges ahead.

£10 per month could fund bursaries for people who cannot afford our voyages, giving them a chance to experience a JST voyage and its benefits.

£15 per month could fund essential engineering works on Tenacious so she remains a strong and safe platform for change.

Our regular giving scheme “Watchkeepers” will guide you through sign up, clicking the logo below.
